About this item

The only 13th Floor Elevators LP to make the Billboard chart captures the group at their absolute peak. Released in November 1967, a year after their debut LP ‘Psychedelic Sounds of...’, the band, critics and fans alike consider ‘Easter Everywhere’ to be the Elevator’s finest work. Produced by Lelan Rogers, the music is delivered with an informed power and intensity of knowing. Even the quieter tracks, “Dust” and “Had To Tell You” display a restrained beauty and purity of vision which perfectly counterbalances the intensity of “Earthquake” and “Slip Inside This House”.

On 10th May 2015, the surviving members of the band (Roky Erickson, Tommy Hall, Ronnie Leatherman and John Ike Walton) performed a 50th Anniversary reunion concert at the Austin Psych Fest. So significant was the event, it was covered by the media worldwide and in the band’s honour, the name of the festival was changed to Levitation - a key track from ‘Easter Everywhere’.

Disc 1 is the rare mono version of the album remastered from the original vinyl - surviving International Artists suggests that as few as 120 mono stock copies were sold to order. The mono mix offers a more solid sound throughout, with a notable heavier bass mix compared to the stereo amongst other key differences. Disc 2 is the original stereo mix, remastered in 2009 from the 2-track master by Paul Drummond and Andrew Thompson from Sound Performance. The second disc also features bonus rare recording session outtake “Fire in My Bones”, which was remastered in 2007 by Walt Andrus.
